    Exclamation Illegal TV and movie operator jailed in UAE

    A man has been jailed for six months after he illegally uploaded and streamed movies and shows.

    Abu Dhabi Criminal Court handed down the sentence to the administrator of the pirate website in UAE after he was found guilty of illegally uploading torrents and facilitating the illegal streaming of copyrighted television series and movies.
    The defendant will be deported at the end of his sentence.
    A statement from OSN said following their complaint, Abu Dhabi Police investigated and provided evidence to the prosecutor who charged the defendant with criminal offences.
    A technical expert appointed by court reviewed the evidence and conducted hearings to cross-examine the defence.
    Based on the facts and evidence, the judge convicted the operator and gave him six months in jail followed by deportation.
    The defendant was also ordered to pay a fine of Dhs50,000 to OSN in compensation for copyright and trademark infringement, he has appealed the verdict.
    Sophie Moloney, General Counsel of OSN, said: “The authorities have adopted extreme vigilance to all forms of television piracy, which has resulted in websites streaming illegal content being blocked in the UAE.”
    “Stealing movies or television series is an offence, whether it is online or as DVDs from a shop, and the authorities recognise that the financial impact on the legitimate copyright owners will be the same.”
